Ball Point (BP) needles are designed to alleviate making holes in materials. The cross fibres which constitute woven materials. When a needle with a standard “sharp” point encounters one of those fibres in penetrating the fabric, it cuts right through the fibre. This creates a hole in the fabric. The Ball Point needle pushes aside the fibre it encounters in penetration and thereby avoids making a damaging hole in the fabric.
Needle system: 135×17 Ball point needle.

- Additional information
A needle system is a group of needles made to fit specific sewing machines. All needles in a system are of the same length and shank size, but are of various diameters. Lower size numbers are narrower or thinner needles used for lighter materials. Higher size numbers indicate a needle of thicker diameter, used for heavier materials. Match your needle system to your machine, then the size of the needle to the product you are sewing.
